for iraq from george w. bush to barack obama." welcome to both of you. great to be able to talk to both of you here. the close of this campaign. it is very interesting to hear both president obama and mitt romney look in their rearview mirror about the last decade in foreign policy and national security policy and the president saying, look, i ended the war in iraq, we are on a glide path out of afghanistan. and yet we know the threat from both of these countries still remains and there's a lot of unfinished business. michael, you get to a lot of that of course in your book, in iraq. the idea that we're done. put it in the rear view mir but there's a lot of unfinished business. >> yeah. one thing that's striking to me is just really the gap between the campaign rhetoric and what the obama administration's actual policy was in iraq because you have to ask yourself the question, what does it mean to end a war? and it's lot more than simply removing troops and actually, when president obama approached iraq, he, himself, and his team, thought it entailed a lot more than removing troops them
the presidencies of bill clinton and george w. bush. dan balz of "the washington post" is author of a narrative of the 2008 campaign. and michael duffy of "time magazine" is author of a book about the world's most exclusive fraternity. the name of that book is "the presidents club." michael duffy as these presidents go from being campaigners to being presidents, how are they transformed? >> you know we asked a couple of the presidents who are still alive what they remember the big surprise or the big shock being when they finally stepped from being candidate into the oval office. and they say three things. one is the speed of the decisions come much faster. and unpredictably. they can't control the agenda. the second is, they're all hard. there are no easy ones and they all are fairly outspoken about just how difficult the choices are. basically there are downsides everywhere. and the third thing is that's a little more interesting. just because you make the decision doesn't mean anything happens. when ike took over from truman, truman said "poor ike, he'll think it's just like the army. do thi
brooks was a deputy secretary of state under president george w. bush. nick burns, form he undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. good to see both of you. let me ask you your reaction first to this. to suzanne's reporting what the cia says happened. >> as a cia alumni, i'm not surprise told at the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years now and their bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their colleagues as well as other americans. i think we're deeply indebted to them. >> nick, ely lake from the daily beast, i know you're familiar with his reporting. he's done some fantastic reporting. he's saying the state department never requested military back-up the night of the benghazi attack. normally that would have been the responsibility of the ambassador who of course was in the heat of the moment there. so that then would have fallen to the state department to make that decision, and as we know, they could hear it in real-time. does this surprise you? >> you know,
. >> peter brooks a deputy secretary of state under george w. bush, and nick burns, former undersecretary for political affairs on the democratic side. and republican. let me ask for reaction first, peter. to what the cia says happened? >> i'm not surprised of the bravery of these officers. these people have been at war for many years and the bravery is no surprise whatsoever. i'm sure they did what they felt they needed to do to protect their fellow colleagues as well as other americans, and i think we're deeply indebted to them. >>> eli lake from "the daily beast." he has done some fantastic reporting. saying that the state department never requested military backup the night of the benghazi attack. normally, that would be the responsibility of the ambassador. that would have fallen to the state department to make that decision and they could hear it in real time, does this surprise you? >> you know, erin, i have to say, as i said before, and as you know, i served not just in democratic administrations, but republican administrations, including for george w. bush, i really find it distu
if he was being honest going all the way back to george h.w. bush in 1992, the republicans take a run into that state at the last minute. and they never carry that state. there are fundamental structural problems for them in pennsylvania. i think that what's happened here -- >> they're putting a -- >> he can't carry ohio. he can't crack ohio so he's searching for pennsylvania. >> hold on, buddy. unlike past years, look, i understand there have been saints, particularly in 2008, into pennsylvania, which makes no sense at all. i happen to agree with you. now a fortune from superpacs is being put into pennsylvania and being followed up on the ground with romney going there. bob shrum, that's what makes it more interesting. and i want to let ed continue. that's what makes it more interesting. >> you know, in pennsylvania they elected a republican senator in 2010 and they've got a republican governor. so it's not completely foreign territory. >> 2010. a presidential year are quite different. and you know it, ed. >> that's right. it's been tough for us since 1988. but that said, it's in pla
going after george w. bush about his military service. >> yeah. look i mean, what has two thumbs and thinks the mainstream media is liberal? this guy. it is an old argument and tired argument but not an untrue argument. it seems to me a lot of the mainstream media basically, they are working from the same cues that the same assumptions that the essentially the democratic party is working from. so in the weeks that the benghazi story has been unfolding and the president has been saying these really outrage justly untrue things about what you ordered, when he ordered it and got all the information outgoing back to susan rise how the cia operatives, basically our ambassador's bodyguards is flatly untrue and no one revisited that. the media is obsessing the war on women and binders and all of this, sort of nonsense about big bird and i think things are. doesn't mean they're insincere but where they get excited lines up with democrats. jon: it's a training world. jonah goldberg, thank you. >> great to be here, thanks. jenna: we're awaiting some live remarks from governor romney. his c
of president george w. bush bush's service in the alabama national guard popped up in the last couple days, last couple of weeks of the election. in 2000, there were reports of a dui arrest that bush had in connecticut a couple decades before the. in both of those cases, they didn't really move many votes. southern ocean of the october surprise is something that can completely alter a presidential contest really hasn't done that that much. >> host: right. we both noted example that george w. bush. he won. do we have evidence that an october surprise really swayed -- sways voters to? >> guest: eyesight a couple of examples in that article. it's not necessarily the presidential level but let's take a look at some of the races farther down about happening around the country right now. in indiana, the senate candidate richard mourdock looked like he was slightly ahead of democrats joe donnelly going into the final debate between the two men. in that debate, mourdock made some comments about rape that were taken, well, that were able to be used in a democratic campaign ad. those comments have d
in a presidential campaign >> think of george w. bush, and campaigning for mitt romney. it would be all over the place. what is this former president doing campaigning? lou: think about what difference in history is if eisenhower is campaigning for nixon in 1960. >> exactly, and we have seen that our former presidents, maybe with the exception of jimmy carter, who every once in awhile stick a needle into somebody's back, but basically even carter hasn't gone and the campaign trail in favor of aristocratic and it. lou: a lot of journalists trying to catch up with anne klein reporting on the machinations of clinton, the secretary and her legal team trying to match your reporting. her role, the president's -- the former president's role in taking responsibility for benghazi, then stepping back from it, leaving her in a heightened, elevated, if you will, memory, at least, those who follow politics, but taking effectively no responsibility. the president's stepping forward. what is going on here? >> and the president was asked today, i believe, about this benghazi think. he said, as i said to my

chief of staff to president george w. bush, karl rove. fox is a contributor. good to have you with us. you have said from the outset that this would be a tight race. did you really expected to be this tech??3 >> the -- that is hard to say, but it will be tight. this will not be settled until the wee hours of wednesday morning. maybe sometime wednesday they will finish counting the ballots, but it will be very tight. lou: and in your most recent op-ed in the "wall street journal" you said it is all about the numbers. amongst the numbers you put a run the victory by two or three percentage points. are you updating that here tonight? are you still convinced of that margin? >> i still think it will e close to that margin. i do think there was an impact on this race to my subtle impact. let's go beyond the polls. let's start looking at the actual turnout. the key for me is ohio. it. lou: all right. i love it. >> there we go. 547,000 democrats have voted early or cast an absentee ballot early or have requested an absentee ballots compared to 470,000 republicans. democrats traditionally out
separated george w. bush and 2004 where john kerry and george w. bush were very close. and then you look at some of the built-in advantages republicans have in the state today, whether paul ryan being on the ticket. whether scott walker having won his recall election on june 5th and expanded his margin from 2010. reince priebus being chairman of the republican national committee. republicans are pretty fired up in wisconsin these days. bill: you mentioned 2004, here are the results, 50-49 kerry over bush. it was less than that. it was .35% of the total vote in the state. >> right. bill: so your point is well-taken. go back to 2008. i want to pop down to ohio because later tonight in the southwestern corner of the state, hamilton county, city of cincinnati, westchester, ohio, is the town. do you know who is from there? >> i don't know, somebody really cool. bill: house speaker john boehner is from westchester, ohio. they will have rudy giuliani and condoleezza rice and the list goes on and on later tonight. the reason they're doing that, steve, you see the border counties around cincinnat
would be complete without me mentioning the conversation between george w. bush and jock chirac where bush had been unsuccessful in according to buy support the war. let me just read a brief passage and comment. talking about a phone call. you and i share a common faith. roman catholic methodist, but we are both christians committed to the teachings of the bible. we share one common laura. but then bush went on. at work in the middle east. biblical prophecies are being fulfilled. this confrontation is willed by guy who wants to use this conflict to raise his people's enemies before a new age begins. and why don't you describe what god and my god were being referenced and what their response was. >> well, actually, he got up the phone and looked at his aides and said, does anybody know what he was talking about? [laughter] and they knew it was something religious because of this whole thing about biblical prophecy. actually, the french government went and sought out the assistance of a biblical scholar in switzerland. and i just want to stop. we're talking about whether or not france w
political journalism to the latest, you know, whatever happened recently. george w. bush's fairly narrow victory in 2004 if you look at it, particularly for an incumbent, was a sign that the left was dead forever. permanent republican majority and then 2006 and 2008 was, oh, man, the republicans are going to be a permanent minority party. 2010 we write these pieces. the long-term demographic trends are not great for the represent tan party. >> people of color. we talked about this. the republican party's greatest challenge, i've been saying this for 20 years, you can't just continue on with white voters. if mitt romney wins the election he'll win with white voters. we've seen that polling data. the challenges as a governing president, do you want to just win elections with just white voters? women don't really like you, african-americans, latinos. that's the -- >> the gender gap is nowhere near where the racial gap is. >> it's huge for the race. >> we are now headed -- there's a headline yesterday for editors, the most racially polarized election since 1988. that was the famous election
. the point is that it's close. at this point, the 2000, george w. bush looked about as good as barak obama does today, but then the dui story came out and the late break polls changed. so things are still dynamic and it's still possible for things to move between now and 108 hours from now. >> gretchen: thanks so much for your thoughts today. got to wrap it up. coming up, new investigation shows you're spending more on gas than you need to. the auto makers accused of ripping you off. that story coming up next. plus the last jobs report before tuesday's election. so will it help the president or hurt him? charles pain is here with a preview used capital one venture miles for their "destination wedding." double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards...

'm a big supporter of george w. bush. he would be surprised to see that since i campaigned for john kerry. it is a couple of republican operatives in atlanta who are sending misleading fliers to democrats in maine, trying to get into vote for cynthia. it is ridiculous. only residents of the place you are running should contribute. if you're running for senate in maine, only people in maine could contribute. >> democracy have representation. that led to the birth of our country. it was not about corporations. it is not about karl rove. it was about representation. one of our most special freedoms. terrible decisions, a super pacs bad. people talk about big government being bad. my experience is the political industrial complex that is just as insidious both here in maine and nationally. i do think we need to get back to the principle that when people want to run for office they should be able to have a straight dialogue with the electorate. they should be able to say who's a lot for me. people should not come in from atlanta saying do not vote for angus king or cynthia. that should not be
in the tidewater region. you can see it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized s
in the obama administration, but that's a program that was really begun under george w. bush who increased it tremendously then. there's kind after bipartisan consensus that is increasing a certain amount of dependency on government. >> steve: and it has to do with the economic circumstances we find ourselves in right now. look at skyrocketing people who are suddenly on disability simply because, many surmise, they've run out of government benefits and only way they can get money back in the kitty. >> well, republicans are worried probably more about the increase in welfare spending i don't know what is warranted by the economic down turn because clearly, with what happened to the economy in 2009, 2010, a lot more people than usual were going to need some economic assistance from the government. no doubt about that. but the problem is, is that the spending has increased beyond that at a higher, greater pace than what would have been warranted just by our hard times. >> clayton: byron york, always good to see you on the show. we thank you for getting up with us on a sunday. >> thank you, gu
/11 victims to trumpet the george w. bush political agenda. that is wrong. it a fended -- offended many of the survivors and first responders, and i felt i needed to stand up. >> moderator: governor? thompson: i never questioned her pate lottism, i -- patriotism, i questioned her judgment. every person from wisconsin voted for it, including nancy pelosi. everybody voted for it except 22 individuals. 95% voted for it. it bothers me because i was there helping out. and if you talk to george pataki and mayor giuliani, they said i was a force of nature because i was up there so often helping people get things. and congress didn't give the appropriation she's talking about from things, people didn't get it. that's true, they didn't. but it wasn't because we didn't try. the federal government -- she's the congress, they didn't appropriate the money. that's why they didn't get the treatment they did. plus, they put a restriction in as to who could get it. we had to interpret the federal law. if we could have given more money out to more people, we would have. and talking about her judgment, no
